Our speaker this week was Rev. Kate Mackie, Rosedale Gardens Presbyterian Church.
Rev. Kate spoke of the history of her church’s special campaign, “The Blessing Bag Project”. These gift bags are given to health care workers, teachers, and caregivers in area nursing homes. The bags include many goodies and gift cards from local businesses. In the past, the money was raised through efforts such projects as last year’s “Be the I in Kind” sign sales. The organization has also held a pizza day for teachers in the Livonia and Clarenceville school districts. These projects add to the rich tapestry that makes Livonia a caring community.
